Oct 28, 2018

Naperville, Ill., October 29, 2018 – SKILSAW, a pioneer in the power tool market and the inventor of the portable circular saw, announced today its 12 Inch Worm Drive Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw. Known for its deep heritage pioneering the Worm Drive technology in circular saws, SKILSAW is applying this market leading innovation to the miter saw. Ideal for cutting crown molding and trim, the saw features worm drive gearing with lightest-in-class design, enabling easy, accurate, cutting on any jobsite.

Building on the foundation of SKILSAW’s original Worm Drive Gearing technology, the new 12 Inch Worm Drive Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw delivers relentless power and performance for maximum productivity. In addition, SKILSAW’s 15 AMP Dual-Field™ motor is specifically designed to keep the saw motor cool on the job, enabling pros to tackle the toughest jobs.

SKILSAW includes numerous features to enable precision cutting, flexibility and capacity for professional applications. A LED shadow light casts a shadow to accurately align with the cutline. Adjustable 0 and 45 degree bevel stops allow for quick and accurate cuts right out of the box. Dual bevel cutting capacity for both left and right cuts gives users greater flexibility and cut control. The saw also features an impressive 4x4 cross cut capacity.

Setting the true standard for the industry, this is the only miter saw powered by SKILSAW’s legendary worm drive gearing, delivering relentless power and precision, coupled with lightest-in-class, ergonomic design.
